Questions!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My wedding is in November 2013, but I am trying to do everything my self and ahead of time. And have some questions. Im looking at having it at the Blau Varadero Hotel.

Did they have a cake large enough for your guests and were you able to pick out your kind and color of your cake?

Where you able to pick out your flowers?

Did you have to pay for dinner for all your guests or was it all-inclusive?

Was there international alcoholic drinks or just local?

Did you do wedding favours? I was thinking of doing little bags with cups, hand sanitizer, a little pack of kleenex(for when we are off the resort) and a weekly planner almost talking about what we are doing for the week and activities and things to know about Varadero. and I was thinking flip flops in our colors.

And if you don't mind me asking how much was your wedding? ( my budget is 15,000 and I thought that was pretty decent considering it is in Cuba, but at work someone was telling me how their dinner, not including drinks was over 15,000, so now I'm super nervous)

 

 

Thanks so much for your advice and input,

Anna

Hey Anna,

 

Welcome and congrats!  You should probably do a search for your resort, looking at reviews and planning threads.  I can't give you any specifics because my wedding is taking place in Cabo.

 

But check out this thread:

There is sooo much information on here I am sure you will find answers to most of your questions and answers to questions you haven't even thought of yet.  Happy Planning!

The only way their dinner was 15,000 if they brought 400 people or more... and I really doubt it's the case here :)

Chances are, there's an extra zero there or your friend wanted you to think she spent millions on her wedding :))))

Some hotels have packages that include a dinner for all the guests,but most require additional charge,which is around $20-35pp

 

cheers!

 

 

Here's a link to sunwing site for your references so you can check what hotel may include and at what price. You can get a lot for 1500-2000(two thousand and not twenty :) )

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
